Just Twittering Around

After my heavy post about coffee that I wrote last night, that had actually been stewing inside my brain for a couple of weeks, I thought that it might be good to talk about my new internet addiction-adventure – Twitter. I have been a “blogger” since 2001 – I thought I was so cool when I got a blog and a no one even knew what a “blog” was. In fact, I didn’t even know it was called a blog! Back in “those days” it was called an “internet journal.” Anyway, so on my internet journal blog, I saw that people were posting “Twitter” updates. It was weird and I didn’t quite get it.

Over a year later, I see on a local triathlon forum that Lance Armstrong has a Twitter account. That was enough for me! “Uhh… where do I sign up? ” I asked. Why, at Twitter.com of course! After a mere 5 minutes of knowing about Lance on Twitter, I was signed up and had made my first “update,” thus became my addiction of Twitter and Lance Armstrong.

It is partially due to Twitter and Lance that I have gotten on my bike trainer more this winter than I have the past three winters PUT TOGETHER. Yes, I’m a bad triathlete. I guess I just needed an extra “push” or something and watching Lance update about his training for his comeback to the Tour de France was the exact right push. Now my Twitter is full of professional cyclists that Lance has gotten addicted to Twitter. It’s pretty awesome. Lance even puts pictures up of his sessions sometimes. What a stand-up guy, Lance is! He just seems so genuinely wonderful… I’m smitten. Who needs a boyfriend when you can have a fantasy about the most prestigious athlete in the world?!? Ahhh…. The fantasty, of course, includes a lot of bikes and some great riding ON BICYCLES. What I would give to follow the Tour this year like I have dreamed about for the past 5 years or so. It would be LEGENDARY! (Heehee… Barney, I love you too!)

Oh yeah, Lance’s Twitter is here if you want to take the plunge into Twitter-land. Mine is linked on the sidebar, over there.
